Photographs by Karin Apollonia Muller.
Nazraeli Press, Portland, 2008. 48 pp., 31 four color illustrations., 12x15".
On Edge is Karin Apollonia Müller’s second monograph, and
the first to be published by Nazraeli Press. While Angels in Fall
(2001) dealt with the disconnect between human beings and their
environment, On Edge shows the earth “crumbling away”, and
our futile efforts to control or hide the subtle invasion of nature
into cultivated spaces. Working in color with a muted palette
and low contrast, Müller creates powerful images which evoke a
sense of displacement in keeping with artist’s “visitor status” as
a foreigner in Los Angeles. Born in Heidelberg in 1963, Müller
grew up as the daughter of a sea captain. She studied photography
and film at the University of Essen before moving to the
western United States in 1995. Karin Apollonia Müller’s work has
been widely exhibited in the United States and Europe, and is included
in such collections as The Museum of Modern Art, New
York; the Whitney Museum, New York; and the San Francisco
Museum of Modern Art. On Edge is beautifully printed on matt
art paper, bound in cloth wrapped in transluscent paper. This
first printing is limited to 500 copies.
